Authentic Swedish Candy.
Made fresh daily, the traditional way.
Swedish Candy Factory is part of the Stafford's Chocolate's family, and we are proud to be the only bakery in the USA that makes authentic handmade Polkagris.
This Swedish candy stick was invented in 1859 by Amalia Eriksson in the town of Granna, Sweden, and remains a popular candy tradition in Sweden. Committed to baking the very best Polkagris, we use the traditional 150-year-old method with no artificial sweeteners, chemicals or preservatives.
We are located in the beautiful town of Solvang, and we invite you to come visit and see the handmade candy-making process (and sample a few while you're at it!). In the meantime, check out our wide variety of flavors online.

Our baking table is made from a bowling-alley floor, a sacrosanct Swedish tradition.
The original Polkagris was red and white with the fresh taste of peppermint oil.
